'Drinking Buddies' poster -- EXCLUSIVE

Posted on


The new rom-com starring Olivia Wilde and Jake Johnson as friends with the possibility of benefits has an official poster, seen here first on EW.

Kate (Wilde) and Luke (Johnson) are coworkers at a brewery who have one of those will-they-won’t-they friendships. Unfortunately, beyond uncertain chemistry, they are also each in a relationship. Kate is with Chris (Ron Livingston), and Luke is with Jill (Anna Kendrick). Jill wants to take their relationship to the next level, but Luke isn’t ready to commit … especially when he and Kate find themselves spending a weekend alone.

The cast reportedly improvised much of the hilarity that ensues as these craft beer creators navigate their feelings for each other. The film debuted at SXSW, and was purchased by Magnolia Pictures for a release on August 23.
